"One who saves a life, is as though he saves the entire mankind."
That's the message of Eze Esomchukwu Anthony, chairman of the Philanthropic Committee on Philanthropic Activities at the University of Lagos' College of Medicine, in a press release announcing the results of the college's 53rd annual Philanthropic Day, which focused on reducing child mortality and improving maternal health in Nigeria.
Per the release, the eight-week campaign included a breast and cervical cancer screening for 100 women between the ages of 25 and 65, distribution of insecticide-treated nets for 50 pregnant women and children, and free medical consultation and vital health checks for more than 150 women, men, and children.
"At the KB Klub, we believe this is a step in the right direction in seeing the prevalence of early child mortality to a decline and an improvement in the state of maternal health in our region," Anthony says.
"We express our gratitude to our collaborators for sharing in this goal of making a positive impact.
One who saves a life, is as though he saves the entire mankind."
